There is 1 comment on Mapping Mass Incarceration

  1. “[prison admissions] most weren’t in the big cities that had been the focus of previous sociological research on incarceration.”
    I think there is value in studying incarceration for small towns because it can mean a positive impact for many people.
    Also, I am astonished Simes is among the first researchers to investigate the connections between a person’s home, socioeconomic status, and criminal record. That’s hard to believe. Glad to have read this.
